ITunes and Apple Sucks!!!!!

I must say that I really like my IPod. 

I went to go burn a CD today on my laptop and I get an error saying the software is not installled.  I was doing a little research on the Internet and I found out I am not the only person this has happened to.  It turns out that someone else had the exact same error when they installed ITunes.  It seems I got this error, when I installed ITunes also.  As I was reading the thread to fix it, it seems ITunes writes some code into Vista.  It seems like an easy fix.  I will copy below the fix.  All I have to say in Apple sucks but I love my I-Pod.

u need to go to start menu and then on the star search u need to search for “regedit”
when u are inside the regedit, look for this subkey “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}”

on the right side u need to del 2 subkeys

“upperfilters” and “lowerfilters”

close the regedit and restart the windows.

Tinkerbell – DVD Review

tinkerbell

We decided to buy the new DVD, Tinkerbell.  I was not to sure how the movie would be.  I was never a Peter Pan fan growing up but both my kids sure know who Peter Pan is.  Saturday night,  we sat down and watched the movie.  It was a very good straight to DVD movie from Disney.

Here is the basic description of the plot. Tinker Bell will speak in an original film that reveals many of the mysteries of nature through this Disney story.   Tinker Bell opens the doors to Pixie Hollow, a secret hideaway deep in the heart of Never Land, where the Disney Fairies make their home. 

I enjoyed the message from the film of recognizing who you are and what your talents are and how you can help the world with your own talents, instead of wishing for another person’s talent. Also a nice theme theme of dreaming for things that other people say you can never have, and having the will to work for it anyways is written into this story.

The animation is really good and the movie had a great story with some good themes. My 2 1/2 year old daughter sat through most of the movie as well as my four year old son.   If you are thinking of pick it up, I would highly recommend it.  I would give this movie a 4.5 stars out of 5.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – Movie/DVD Review

I was excited to pick up the latest installment of the Indiana Jones series, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  The last one was so good that I knew this one had to be.  I guess I made a bad assumption. 

The plot is very unbelievable.  The Russians infiltrate a US military base in Nevada during the 1950’s.  Of course, it is Area 51 and the Russians want what the US recovered at an alien crash at Roswell.  The story leads us to South America and the search for  El Dorado’s City of Gold. Spoiler alert: We learn during this movie that Indiana has a son played by Shia LeBeouf. Of course, Indiana Jones is able to discover the City of Gold and the secret behind our alien visitors.  The story is alright but a little bit out there. 

I just noticed that George Lucas helped to write the story so it all makes sense.  While watching the movie I swore I saw a light saber, just kidding.  If you have not seen it, don’t waste your time.  Enjoy the first three movies and skip this one.  This movie has officially killed the franchise for me. 

Note to Steven Spielberg, do whatever you can to destroy every copy of this movie.  Note to Shia LeBeouf, just keep making Transformers movies.  I can’t wait for Transformers 2.  Note to Harrison Ford, time to move on to a new role.  I liked you in Air Force One and What Lies Beneath, keep those roles coming.
